“Guildford Jazz is a beacon of light in supporting and promoting live jazz locally: a thriving community arts organisation hosting performances from some of the top jazz musicians in the country while at the same time building strong community links with local musicians, schools and charities. It’s growing audiences are testament to their success and I am delighted to support them as patron.”
